The MA24118A power sensor is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 18 GHz over 60 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs a "dual path" architecture that provides (similar to thermal sensor) True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range, enabling users to make highly accurate average power measurements for CW, multi-tone, and digitally modulated signal up to 18 GHz. The sensors have internal and external triggering capability that facilitates individual slot power measurements of TDMA waveforms as well as burst power measurements of periodic and non-periodic waveforms.
The MA243X0A series Microwave CW USB Power Sensors employ a single-path diode architecture to provide fast, accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz up to 50 GHz with 90 dB of dynamic range.
Anritsu USB power sensors eliminate the need for a traditional power meter. These highly accurate, standalone instruments communicate with a PC via USB or with most of the Anritsu handheld instruments (often requiring Option 19). The sensors measure true RMS power, so they are ideal for measuring CW, modulated RF waveforms (e.g. 3G, 4G and OFDM signals) and multi-tone signals. They are ruggedized for field use with an industry-leading +33 dBm damage level.
These speed sensor heads feature low harmonic emission, low flick noise, high sensitivity, CW and pulse mode operation, FCC part 15 compliance, and more. They’re available with various different antenna types, making them versatile for various applications.
Boonton once again sets the standard for fast RF power measurements with the introduction of its 55 Series Wideband USB power sensors. Built with Boonton's Real-Time Power Processing™ technology (patent pending), this new product line offers speed and accuracy never before seen in a USB form factor. The 55 Series sensors are ideal for manufacturing, design, research, and service in commercial and military applications such as telecommunications, avionics, RADAR, and medical systems. They are the instrument of choice for fast, accurate and highly reliable RF power measurements, equally suitable for product development, compliance testing, and site monitoring applications.
Ducommun’s line of millimeter-wave Doppler and ranging sensors are ideal for automotive radar and Doppler ranging radar applications. They features a compact size, low 1/f noise, high sensitivity, low harmonic and spurious emission, and a circular polarized waveform.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. offers the N6841A RF sensor designed to provide a cost effective solution for placing a fully capable RF monitoring station where it is needed, when it is needed, for any duration of time, and without complex siting constraints or physical infrastructures. This sensor is capable of operation over a wide temperature range of -15°C to 55°C, and can withstand harsh environments without additional expensive protective enclosures.
The RTP5000 peak USB power sensors paired with Boonton’s Real-Time Power Processing deliver 100,000 measurements per second, no gaps in signal acquisition and zero measurement latency. Combining this performance with automatic pulse measurements, CCDF and crest factor statistical analysis, multi-channel capabilities and documentation tools RTP5000 peak power sensors are the ideal instrument for fast, accurate and reliable RF power measurements.
